2018 Britta Herzog Award
Austin Pastel Society Juried Member Exhibition
What a wonderful surprise to receive this honor this afternoon! Today was the awards program for the annual Austin Pastel Society Juried Member Exhibition. Fifty pieces of art were juried in by judge and juror, Margaret Dyer. So many fabulous pieces of art are on display.
The last award given was a new one to this venue, given in honor of Britta Herzog, a Charter member of the Austin Pastel Society. Britta was a vibrant member of the APS, who lost a tough battle with cancer. The membership wanted to honor her memory with an award for creativity at the show.
Unfortunately, I had few chances to really get know this special woman. But I am humbled to be the first recipient of this award in her honor.
The Austin Pastel Society Member Exhibition will be open to the public at the Corridor of Art, 700 Lavaca, Austin through April 30, Monday -.Friday. Hope you can get by to see it if you are in the area.
